I teach the following topics: Quaternary environments, Holocene climate change, volcanoes, geomorphological and sedimentological processes, academic skills, research design and techniques. In various units, I'll help you develop your knowledge and understanding of physical geography by hands-on practical experience in laboratories and on field trips, and by outlining theoretical aspects during large and small group teaching. I'm the personal tutor of a small group of students each year and I guide them throughout their time at Manchester Metropolitan University. I supervise Final Year students undertaking a project in any of the topics listed earlier. We have one-to-one meetings throughout term 3 of second year and all of third year to help develop and hone independent research skills.
